Maybe the Fritz Hollings - Fritz Mondale - Fritz The Cat one.  He's had it for over a decade. 

Thank you, HockeyDude!

I do change it once in a blue moon, bit I always go back.  It's my signature signature.  Smiley

Note: This does not mean there are not third parties, it simply means the other major party isn't challenging the incumbent or the other person running.

In that case, what about Kansas senate?

My mother took my father's name, as just about all married women did in those days.  Mom has passed away and my father is re-married; my stepmother did not take his name.

I have seen gay couples getting married recently using the hyphenated last name.

1876 was a long time ago...

After that, any candidate who had more than 1% margin in the national popular vote won the Electoral College.
Electoral College Strategy? Winning the national popular vote having a more than 1% margin.

That's not true at all.  The popular vote winner has lost the electoral college twice since 1876, most recently in 2000.  Also look at elections like 1960, where the popular vote margin is razor thin, but the electoral vote margin is substantial.

Since 1964, whoever wins Florida and Ohio wins the election, with the exception of 1992 when these two states split on their votes.  Since then, some states previously considered safe for one party have entered the realm of bellweather/battleground states (Virginia, Colorado, NC) while other states have moved the opposite direction (California, New Jersey).

Edit: okay, you did say "by more than one percent", so I guess that is true.  However, winning the popular vote is not a "strategy" to win the electoral vote, even though they usually agree on the winner.

I object to the change of this thread's title.  Please change it back.

Why do I object, you ask?  Because if I am looking for the post-a-self-picture thread, I won't find it, and I come into the currently named thread looking for discussion of gay hookup sites, and that's not what this is.
